The Toms River Police Foundation was established in 2005 as a Non-profit 501(c)(3) Corporation. It is comprised of 14 board members from various businesses and government agencies in Toms River, including the Chief of Police, Mitch Little. The sole purpose of the Foundation is to use the donations collected to assist the police department in funding a variety of projects, equipment and community relations’ events and initiatives.
The Toms River Police Foundation awards several scholarships annually to qualified applicants from all four Toms River high schools and to those students pursuing a career in law enforcement as well as the children of police department members regardless of their career path.
The Foundation has also supported a number of police department community events and initiatives, such as; the bi-annual police department open house, Junior Police Academy, Explorer Scout Program, Auxiliary Police Program, The Veteran Officers Association, AIE (Attitude Is Everything) and HERO (Helping Everyone Respect Others) Programs in our local schools and other valuable programs that would otherwise not be possible. We continue to introduce programs, events and partnerships that will allow us the opportunity to engage with the community and build strong relationships.
Thanks to your support, the Toms River Police Foundation can continue to help the men and women of the police department provide the best service and maintain the best relationship possible with the people we serve.
